The New Game Plus mode in Alan Wake 2, also known as “The Final Draft,” will allow players to restart the main story while retaining all unlocked weapons and upgrades. To balance things out, NG+ comes with a new “Nightmare” difficulty level.

Besides the base campaign, New Game Plus will also offer a new alternative narrative, featuring new collectible manuscript pages, new video content, and even a new ending.
